Emily Lynema presenting. NCSU Libraries’ initial implementation of its Endeca-powered catalog did little to utilize increased flexibility to create more interoperability. This talk would discuss current work to enable integration by creating a web services platform on top of the catalog. Examples include a web service supplying local availability for ISBN REST requests, an RSS layer for all catalog search/browse activities, and OpenSearch integration with the library website’s Quick Search (...

|Code4Lib 2007: The BibApp - Code4Lib.org|
Eric Larson, Nate Vack presenting. What has your repository done for you lately? The Rails-powered BibApp is the ultimate mashup of article databases, citation management software, and digital repositories. To date, it's helped us add over 2000 articles to our repository by organizing citations, identifying articles we can archive, and generating DSpace import packages. It also lets us analyze research produced on campus, illustrating popular research topics, departmental affiliations, and colla...

|Code4Lib 2008: Finding Relationships in MARC, Rob Styles - Code4Lib.org|
I've been doing a lot of work around extracting as much meaning as possible from Marc records, using RDF as the data structure. Marc is a record-centric format, the result is anything but, with the RDF allowing rich relationships to form in the data that can then be used to drive different navigation techniques. This is about making the most of what is in Marc data to do something new.

Joan Starr presenting. Academic digital libraries face serious challenges in trying to adopt agile project management techniques. While there have always been significant differences between how an academic and a corporate team might solve a problem, today, digital library and corporate offerings are often in direct competition. Time-to-market is more important than ever before. This talk will identify the most troublesome characteristics of academic bureaucracies and make suggestions for workin...

How to monitor, in near-real-time, usage of all the great services we build and offer? Often stats-production isn't built-in to our services, and when it is, the lack of standard output makes centralized monitoring difficult. Brown's Library is experimenting with a valued corporate solution, building standardized stats output and trend visualization for new and existing projects -- and centrally exposing this info...

|Code4Lib 2009: Complete faceting - code4lib.org|
We wanted search result faceting at our library. Just the basics with tags for material type, author and such. We found a suitable hammer and now have distributed faceting for 100 million documents with 10 times that number of unique tags. All in sync with Lucene indexes. We had to cheat a bit, but you don't see that when we wave our hands. We'll talk about why brute force and cheating is fine. -- Toke Eskildsen & Mikkel Kamstrup Erlandsen, State and University Library, Denmark
